Excerpt from Secret Beast:
Leo blinks, and his face is transformed. He’s angry, yes—I can see it in the skin around his eyes. But taunting, now. Skin-deep. He uses this anger. He doesn’t just feel it. “It doesn’t matter, darling. What matters is that you signed a contract.”
The backs of my arms pull tight with goose bumps. “I thought we were having dinner.”
“There are no exceptions for meals.” He laughs. “Did you think you would be excused from your obligations as long as you had food in your mouth? Come here.”
He pushes his own chair back, creating space between his body and the table. It’s obvious where I’m meant to go. Two days ago I might have hesitated. Now my feet start moving before the fear can settle down.
It feels too close to the table, and too close to him. He’s tall even when he’s sitting down, and I don’t know what to do with my hands next to this cruel, beautiful devil.
“Take your clothes off.” I reach for the dress. Pull it over my head. The lingerie he bought me is a perfect, delicate fit, and I feel the smallest drafts from the air on my skin. On my nipples. Leo tests one with his thumb and I shiver. “You look better in something other than rags. Do you think,” he muses, “that I meant for you to leave anything on?”
“I thought you might want to take the lingerie off yourself.” Lie, lie, lie. I didn’t think. I just obeyed him, because that’s what I agreed to do. Because I’m too afraid not to. Because I don’t want to admit that part of me is afraid that I want to do what he says. That I get some kind of sick pleasure out of it.
A dangerous grin. “What a good girl. You thought so hard, and you were almost right.” Why? Why does it hurt to hear him be so mean, so mocking, and why do I want him to do it again? “If I have to take it off, then it won’t survive the taking. Do it yourself, and do it now.”
